A practical solution

The proximity of a good counsellor or a good Samaritan will prevent suicides to a certain extent. The media may be utilised to make everybody realise the value of life and not to be indifferent to others.

The easy availability of drugs and other poisons should be controlled. A 24-hour crisis management cell with enough funds must be established and it must function above bribery and redtapism. Prompt service must be its aim. The assistance of various religious organisations can also be sought.
